Bengals TE Tyler Eifert may miss game with a minor wrist injury

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

According to Bengals.com, Tyler Eifert could miss Saturday night's game with a minor wrist injury.

The injuries keep piling up.

Not major injuries.

But enough to keep players out for an exhibition game, no matter how much one wishes to dramatize the label for a so-called dress rehearsal.

Regardless. Tight end Tyler Eifert may be out for Saturday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, writes Geoff Hobson at Bengals.com. Apparently Eifert is dealing with a wrist injury that he suffered during practice this week. You can only imagine the all-in argument that third-string tight end Alex Smith will try to make Saturday night.

Other players that may sit but weren't listed as being out by the team includes Adam Jones (rib) and long-snapper Clark Harris (elbow).

At least 11 players were listed by the team as "not expected to play" headlined by Carlos Dunlap and Andrew Whitworth, both of whom practiced this week but need a little exact time for their respective rehabilitation.
